High-resolution and full coverage AOD downscaling based on the bagging model over the arid and semi-arid areas, NW China Xiangyue Chen

Short summary
Arid and semi-arid areas are data-scarce aerosol areas. We provide path-breaking, high-resolution, full coverage, and long time series AOD datasets (FEC AOD) to support the atmosphere and related studies in northwestern China. The FEC AOD effectively compensates for the deficiency and constraints of in situ observations and satellite AOD products. Meanwhile, FEC AOD products demonstrate a reliable accuracy and ability to capture long-term change information.
